Thread: It's not a razor...it's jewelry! The Aristocrat Arrived

  1. Default It's not a razor...it's jewelry! The Aristocrat Arrived

    The mailman brought a nice little "Priority Mail" box today, and the contents really made my day. The Aristocrat with all the trimmings...and a generous supply of extra blades (including a full blade safe) is now in its new home.

    I have to again thank BluesBishop (Ken) for parting with this Golden beauty.

    Here she is:

    Very nice. I wish modern DEs had cases like these.

    That is one sweet shaver. Befitting for a veteran's mug! Congrats.
    How are you fixed for blades?

    Sigh. This makes me wish that I'd never parted with mine. It was in NOS condition and I sold it on BST in a moment of weakness. Treasure it.

    I have a similar razor. Birth year Aristocrat. I have used it once, and will probably use it only 1x/year....birthday. Also have another by razor and will do the same with it.....1x/year.

    I have recently upgraded to the aristocrat and find that it shaves beautifully, particularly when used with feathers.

    Sweet!

    And as I recently discovered: The Aristocrat is a damn fine shaver!

    I hope you enjoy it brother!! I just got my another Old Type in today and ordered a Fatip...so only using open combs now that nice beauty wasn't seeing any love.....check that blade case...there should be 6 or 7 blades...I think I included a Iridium Super in there....make sure you save that for a nice weekend shave and you may never want another blade again!!

    Lovely. Enjoy that shave.

    I agree - new DEs should come with exquisite boxes and packaging like some of these old ones.
